Theodosia Carter appears to have been a member of the church. I have listings for Doshia/Doshie/Dosha Carter (the various spellings may represent either the multiple ways it was written in the church minutes or my inability to decipher the exact spelling). Magnus may have attended with her, but the minutes do not list him ever becoming a member or participating in church life in any official capacity (i.e. disciplinary committee, witness, work committee, etc.). Doshia Carter appears to have been accepted as a member into the church on the basis of her "experience" of salvation on September 21, 1831. She requested a "letter of dismission" from the church and received it on November 18, 1837. She then returned the letter on February 16, 1839, effectively restoring her membership. The records appear to indicate that she had died by April 30, 1877. My foray into the 1850 census for Oglethorpe County (which you likely have already explored) indicated that she was 46 in 1850 and married to Magnus, a farmer valued at $2,000. Judging by the route of the census taker, the couple appear to have lived next door to (or near) Malessa and Martha Carter.

That's all I have for the couple from the Beaverdam Primitive Baptist Church Records and 1850 census.
